Can the Focus ST diesel estate keep its petrol sibiling honest?

By Faiming_low on 23 Jan 2015 in New model

Attached Image Ford reckons its diesel powered focus ST is just as good as its petrol sibling and asks Autocar's top man, Steve Sutcliffe show us in a short clip why they think so.
In the video, Sutcliffe is seen driving the new Focus ST diesel estate on a slippery Castle Combe and tries to keep the petrol powered Focus ST hatchback behind him. While he manages to keep the hatchback behind over a lap, it is pretty obvious the petrol variant is a much faster car. We wonder why Ford did not choose to use a petrol estate or a diesel hatchback instead to make it a fairer test...
